Topologically free actions and ideals in discrete C*-dynamical systems

  • R. J. Archbold (a1) and J. S. Spielberg (a2)
Abstract

A C*-dynamical system is called topologically free if the action satisfies a certain natural condition weaker than freeness. It is shown that if a discrete system is topologically free then the ideal structure of the crossed product algebra is related to that of the original algebra. One consequence is that a minimal topologically free discrete system has a simple reduced crossed product. Sharper results are obtained when the algebra is abelian.
